I am a mother of five, always looking for different foods to try. I myself am a very picky eater, but I want my children to be more open to trying new things. Their father eats just about anything, and he loves it when I try new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I prefer baking over anything else. I love baking cookies, muffins, and breads. Trying out new desserts fascinates me. I don't eat too many sweets, but seeing my kids,husband, and other family members enjoy them makes me so happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pumpkin bread at Thanksgiving and Christmas is a must.
My cooking triumphs
Anything my family finds great. Especially when they say,"mommy this is so good can you make it again." Or when my husband wants me to make the same thing two or three days in a row. These things let me know that breakfast, dinner, dessert, or just snacks were a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
When I tried making sugar cookies with all butter and no shortening. The flavor was good, but these cookies were so ugly I had to throw them away. I am definitely someone who thinks appearance and textures are very important when cooking anything.
